File size limit exceeded (core dumped)
My squid was working fine from months and suddenly one day it stopped, i have not touched conf file or server at all. so after struggling a lot (un-install install) with with squid i found out that there is a debug mod of squid, start your squid with this
# /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid -N -d 1 -D #
and in output i found
# File size limit exceeded (core dumped) #
this was very new thing for me that default squid store is of 2GB MAX.
# [root@vps sbin]# du -sh /usr/local/squid/var/logs/store.log 2.1G /usr/local/squid/var/logs/store.log #
and when store size increases squid stop working so there are 2 ways
1) (quick option) delete the store.log and start squid with “/usr/local/squid/sbin/squid -N -d 1 -D” and it will be recreated
2) (batter option) recompile squid with large file support.
# /configure --enable-icmp --enable-kill-parent-hack --enable-ssl --enable-linux-netfilter --enable-large-cache-files --enable-follow-x-forwarded-for --with-large-files #
